Actually, WREF Ridgefield (Danbury) CT is usually the culprit for me here in
Derry from about 1 hour before sunset until 30 minutes after, then once WREF
signs of, I'm good to go the rest of the night..

PS: WFAN was booming like a local from Derry to Laconia this morning 7-8AM,
no fade I listened to Giants fans try to fabricate reasons that
NYG will beat the Pats!

To the pattern gurus out there. I understand WEEI's pattern was
designed to protect KOA Denver but it was also designed in the 1940's
when the population west of Natick was sparse compared to now.
Couldn't it be tweaked so night coverage in northern Middlesex county
be improved? It is frustrating to hear Mike Adams fighting over the
mighty fulltime day signal from Pan Yam whatever in upstate NY

I doubt it could be improved west of Framingham because of Denver but
certainly it could be improved to the northwest unless I am missing

I am also surprised that Entercom has kept the Needham land as real
estate in that areais now gold. I know they were looking at moving to
the WRKO site in Burlington but nothing has come of that.
